I'm currently studying IR at ANU and am looking into moving off-campus into a two bedroom flat at the start of next year. I work at McDonald's Manuka (not glamorous, but it pays rent) and between that and studying I love to just chill out and read or watch Netflix. I'm fairly quiet and not the most social person, so the chances of me ever having more than one person over at a time is slim to none, but I love a good yarn and watching TV or playing board games (though I'm not very good). I'm very tidy and will always keep up my end of the cleaning deal. My budget is $200 a week (but less would be even better). Feel free to shoot me a message or text if you'd like to get to know me more before making the plunge! I'd prefer living with a friend anyway so we should get to know each other! :)

Hi there, I'm Jason, currently living in Sydney,NSW. I have been offered a fixed term contract to work as a Finance Professional (Accountant) with a Federal Government Department. Ideally I'd like to secure a place by 1st May so that I may be able to commence my role immediately in Canberra, ACT. I'm a very neat and tidy person and respect the privacy of those whom I stay with regards to cleanliness, respect and keeping noise to a minimum. I am however very social and would welcome the opportunity to have a conversation and participate in sporting and non-sporting activities as hobbies sometimes or just chill with drinks. Did I mention that I'm a good cook and am willing to share some of my delicious food! :) ;) . Only one way to find out. Haha!

Unfurnished room in a share house

We are looking for a new housemate in our beautiful house in Watson. The house has floating timber floors and new carpeting with gas ducted heating throughout- we have it on a timer so throughout winter our house is lovely, but bills stay down. The room is spacious (enough for a double bed and desk) with built in robes There are solar panels (cheap electricity) and a dishwasher. I know for a lot of people Watson is just a bit too far out, but the beauty of where we live is honestly worth it, the house backs onto the Mt Majura nature reserve with gate access from the back yard. We see gang gangs, rosellas and cockatoos nesting from our backyard. And at the end of the street is the Knox (literally one of the best cafes in CBR), for all your caffeine needs. Rent due by the 13th of every month, the house is fully furnished. However, the bedroom is unfurnished. We've just included the real-estate photos but it's a beautiful house, and it's nicely furnished- come and see for yourself! :D Bills are split quarterly but are usually really good. And there is a big shed! We have a rotating cleaning roster, so it'll be your turn to clean the shared spaces and floors once a month. We have a huuuuuuge TV, with Netflix, Foxtel, Apple TV, a PS4 and all that good stuff. Unlimited fast VDSL internet is connected and $20 each a month. The 39 bus stops at the end of the street (Adriana) takes it every day to uni, it takes usually about 30 mins.

I'm a public servant looking for short term accommodation anyehere close to a direct bus to the city. I'm hoping to find somewhere warm for the winter months and ideally, a place I can keep my cat, George with me. He's big ol panther but he's very cool. On the weekends i do my best to get our of the house to catch up on some studies, find a quite space to read and check out Canberra's music and art scene. I'm a non-smoker and would like to share with someone who doesn't smoke. This is very important to me. Some good stuff: I'm not a party person and tend to keep quiet and friendly around the home. I'm a second-hand book store and tea-chat kind of person. I also like walks, baking cakes and overgrown gardens. I'm tidy and will keep the house fresh and clean. My household pet peeves are food and dirty dishes left in sinks overnight and grimy, dirty or dusty floors. I like my pad dust, ( human and pet) hair and crawlie free. I am a Queensland ring-in so this chilly autumn weather has been a surprise! I will happily talk to you about heating expectations etc before we get to winter. Cheers, Rose

Hi there! I work full time usually 6 or 7 days a week but with early starts so would prefer a quiet house where people weren’t coming and going all night as this is a big problem at my current residence. I really like animals and finished studying Vet Nursing last year and whilst I don't have any pets of my own I would be happy to share a house with any. I like to think I’m very tidy and clean up after myself. I spend what little free time I have during the week at the gym or on my laptop. I'd be happy to hang out with housemates for a drink every now and then but am also equally happy to give you your own space. Please do not hesitate to send me a message if you would like to know more. Thanks for your time

Unfurnished room with own bathroom

Watson, Canberra

Unfurnished room with own bathroom

One double room available in a sunny (north-east facing) and comfortable 2bedroom/ 2bathroom unit at the Verona complex on Aspinall Street. Room gets late afternoon sun in winter and summer. You'll fit if you don't need your room choc full of stuff outside of a bookcase and bedside tables. Includes built in robes, and ensuite bathroom. Working female person aged roughly 25 - 35 preferred. No couples please. New resident would ideally come with, or being willing to acquire some furniture and appliances as the current housemate is taking most of theirs. The shared space is a roomy lounge / dining area where you can do whatever considerate housemates like to do. There is some minimal space in the shared area for storage and decorating, there is also some storage available in the garage outside. Kitchen is cosy but has all recently-installed appliances, including a dishwasher. Outside there is space for two cars, however requires light coordination as the parking is in front/behind each other rather than side-to-side. Would suit hatchback-size only as the other car is quite large. To Civic or ANU: 15-20 minute drive 20-30mins on the bus (bus stop outside the door) or bike for 20-30 mins depending on your pace (nice ride to ANU especially). Easy walking distance to the cool Watson shops (Knox Cafe, Lolo and Lola Philippino the highlights but plenty of other things), Mt Majura walking trails and the Capital Region Farmers Market. Gas heating available in the communal areas in winter, your choice of fans in summer or a heater in your bedroom in winter.

Hi, we are Ned and Jess (and our fur baby Milo who is a very loving Ragdoll Kitty). We are a young couple working full time with hobbies on the side. We are looking for a young person similar to ourselves to share our home. We love food and I (Jess) am a massive home body, I love cooking and baking and cleaning our home. Ned spends a lot of time with his hobbies and mates out and about and a lot of weekends have us camping down the coast or catching up with friends and family. We have a large living space and balcony as well as a breakfast bar. There is a communal swimming pool and air conditioning. We live near a corner store with a beautiful coffee shop - The Knox. Walking distance to the farmers market (and Macdonalds). Right on the tram line with plenty of bus stops. You would have your own room with your own bathroom. There is off street parking and our apartment is on the third floor so elevated with the balcony having lots of privacy from neighbours. We are looking for someone to move in asap/whenever. Our last housemate moved out in November and we have finally got around to advertising again. 6-12 months is ideal but we are happy to negotiate lease and such.

I'm Dan. I work in public relations for the Department of Defence and currently completing my Masters. I am always up for a chat over a couple of drinks. I enjoy books, movies, and sometimes video games. I am quiet (prefer consuming media with headphones) and very clean. I normally meal prep on a Sunday and then I'm pretty much done with the kitchen for the week. No pets of my own but I love animals. I consider myself very laid back, except when competing at board games.

I'm friendly, clean, neat, sociable and respectful of the privacy of others. I've lived in flat/house shares for a few years now and I am now a fully "trained" housemate. I'm working part-time as a therapist and relatively new to Canberra. I have an assistance dog who is ridiculously well behaved. At times, I work from home auditing cases. Please note: I'm only looking to rent as a co-tenant or as a head tenant. I'd be willing to discuss all agreements upfront, even an occupancy agreement with the proviso that I be given a 4 to 6 weeks notice period. Hey guys, the rental market is brutal out there! I'd love to hear from you. In my spare time, I paint and have an active social life on weekends. I tend to go for hikes with my dog, visit friends and I am involved in many side projects that keep me busy. I tend to watch too much TV and Netflix too. I'm looking for a long term stay.

A fun and easy-going person who's always up for a chat but at the same time respectful enough to give everyone their own space. I believe 'mutual respect' is the most important element for peaceful co-resistance and I always take extra care in making sure that my actions don't hurt/bother the people I live/stay with. And besides all that, I also believe that a little fun hurts nobody! :)

I'm doing Honours in visual art ANU. When I’m not studying, I love to head up to Mt Ainslie or out to the Cotter, cook dinner for friends, or spend time with a book. I'm looking for a place to call home for this year and possibly the first half of next. Somewhere that's a great environment to be in, not just a room to bunk in. I’d love to share dinner or a glass of wine when our schedules permit, but also like my own space when studying. I hope I’d be welcome to have friends over too! Shoot me a message if you think I'd be a good fit for your place. Looking forward to hearing from you!
